Vater has him listed as one of the artists that endorse their products. The photo on the Vater website has the following caption: "Steven Adler uses the Vater 7A Wood Tip".
In an article/interview found on MusicRadar, Steven Adler says: "I just recently signed up with Ludwig. I am so excited – I feel as though all the work and practice is starting to pay off. I'm playing the Ludwig Classic Maple kit, and I can't wait – they're making me a kit right now, and I can't wait till it gets here. I use Vater sticks and Paiste cymbals. Basically, I'm turning into John Bonham." [Laughs]
